Clarabelle in moo-d for fun day
Posted on June 29, 2006
A pantomime cow visited a Dunstable school to teach the pupils about teamwork and get them in the moo-d for a village carnival.
Clarabelle the cow is an important part of the Eaton Bray and Edlesborough Carnival team, pupils at Ashton Middle School heard, and helped to raise more than £10,000 last year for charity.
Canon Malcolm Grant, vicar of Eaton Bray with Edlesborough, told the children: "If you want to achieve success, working together as a team is very important because in a team everyone pulls together and helps one another.
"Just think the work TEAM - Together Each Achieves More.
"Good teamwork is important whether it is doing something for your school, fundraising for a charity or everyday life in our families.
"Clarabelle is a great example, helping our carnival team with its aim of having a big success on July 1 with St Mary's Village Carnival at Edlesborough Green."
This year, 25 per cent of the money raised at the carnival will be given to the Iain Rennie Hospice, with funds also going to repair St Mary's in Eaton Bray and to local charities and good causes.
